SWEET WILD LILY EP LYRICS

SWEET WILD LILY 

Words and music by Ben Glover

My sweet wild Lily, I see you floating by 

Between the waves dancing and the deep drifting sky 

Come on home to yourself now Lily 

You’ve been gone a while  

There's something missing 

From your eyes, in your smile 

Sweet wild Lily 

Oh my sweet wild Lily, life comes at us fast 

We're so far down the line there's no going back 

We all need our north star 

There's so much more than what we see 

Sometimes we stray, get in our own way 

Be our own worst enemy 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily 

Don't go searching for your trouble, for your pain 

Let go of the story that you've playing time and time again 

You've known freedom 

You watched the horses run 

But now you're lost in your head, in words that were said 

Tangled in silver threads 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily 

Sweet wild Lily

ARGUING WITH GHOSTS

Word and music by Ben Glover/Gretchen Peters/Matraca Berg 

I get lost in my hometown 

Since they tore the drive in down 

I find myself all turned around 

I get lost in my hometown 

I'm getting hard to recognize 

They say the mirror never lies 

I've still got my father’s eyes 

But I'm getting hard to recognise 

There's a picture on the wall 

We got married in the fall 

I don't know those kids at all 

There's a picture on the wall 

 

The years go by like days 

Sometimes the days go back like years 

And I don't know which one I hate the most 

At the same old kitchen table 

In the same old busted chair 

I'm drinking whiskey and arguing with the ghosts 

Arguing with the ghosts 

 

I light one cigarrette a day 

I watch it burn then walk away 

A wisp of smoke in your old ashtray 

I light one cigarrette a day 

 

The years go by like days 

Sometimes the days go back like years 

And I don't know which one I hate the most 

At the same old kitchen table 

At the same old busted chair 

I'm drinking whiskey and arguing with the ghosts 

Arguing with the ghosts

BROKE DOWN 

Words & music by Ben Glover & Gretchen Peters

Coffee black, I'm shifting gears 

One headlight, but the night is clear 

I called you up from my hotel room 

When the phone just rang that's when I knew 

 

You're the sun going down 

You're the circus leaving town 

and I'm standing with a ticket in my hand 

You're the last wreckin truck 

Disappearing in the dust 

And I'm standing in the road 

Broke down, broke down, broke down 

 

Interstate pushing eighty-five 

Sun comes up, pulling in the drive 

Reaching out with my one free hand 

Turned the front door key and heard the back door slam 

 

You're the sun going down 

You're the circus leaving town 

and I'm standing with a ticket in my hand 

You're the last wreckin truck 

Disappearing in the dust 

And I'm standing in the road 

Broke down, broke down, broke down

Fireflies Dancing 

Words & music by Ben Glover

Fireflies dancing a July night 

Fireflies dancing on a July night 

We're here and gone in the blink of an eye 

 

Sister, brother just for now 

Sister, brother just for now 

Lay our troubles and worries down 

 

There’s a place where the mountain meets the sea 

There’s a place where the mountain meets the sea 

That’s where my soul knows how to be free 

 

I dreamed Gracie and I walked hand in hand 

Dreamed Gracie and I walked hand in hand 

Our feet sinking into that golden sand 

 

See my thoughts aint heavy, my heart is light 

My thoughts aint heavy, my heart is light 

When I got Gracie by my side 

 

It’s time just wasted holding regret 

It’s time just wasted holding regret 

We don’t know how it’s all gonna turn out yet 

 

All life’s a dance ‘tween joy and hurt 

All life’s a dance ‘tween joy and hurt 

'Tween the stars in the sky and the flowers in the dirt 

 

Shall we be each other’s guiding hand 

Shall we be each other’s guiding hand 

When night comes falling on the land 

 

Fireflies dancing on a July night 

Fireflies dancing on a July night 

We're here and gone in the blink of an eye
